I came across this quote the other day:
The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.
I’ve adopted this as my mantra.
When I turned 50, I promised myself that I’d make an effort to get in shape, to be a healthier me. Only, the days turned into weeks and the weeks into months and 2017 became 2018. I could see my fifty-first year on the horizon and I was quite disappointed with myself. After all, I have a goal of living to be at least 103 years old. But, poor health choices were sending me down an entirely different road.
Today begins week six of the health and wellness challenge that I promised myself I would complete. After five weeks of making healthier food choices and doing some strength and cardio training, I’m happy to say that I’m on my way to becoming the person I want to be. I’ve lost weight and inches and have more energy.
Making progress feels so much better than making excuses.
So – this is me having a little victory moment!
I hope you experience a victory of your own this week!
